cazmantis Posted July 15, 2010 Share Posted July 15, 2010 Hi, Could I just check with someone if I have got this right please? My definition of a flanking region of a gene is the region x bp upstream from the start codon and the equivalent downstream from the stop codon? For the current gene I am looking at I am using about 500bp as my flanking region as it seemed a sensible figure (1,000 bp upstream is the end of another gene so I didn't want to go into that) but is there an official way to identify a flanking region or would my estimate be appropriate? I am BLASTING these regions to try and identify similarity. Thanks so much! Caz Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
